About Us
honeysales was founded in 2021 in Berlin by business and technology enthusiasts. We're a B2B SaaS solution that supercharges sales people by automating end-to-end customer acquisition and nurturing.

We're currently based in Berlin Kreuzberg in a fantastic office right on Oranienstraße. Our team of 30+ driven and passionate individuals combines the in-depth experience of the B2B sales industry with engineering and product skills gained at top technology firms.
